The Learning Commons: Seven Simple Steps to Transform Your Library

The Learning Commons: Seven Simple Steps to Transform Your Library | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it
There's a revolution in today's libraries---how they are organized, the types of resources they offer, how they serve patrons, and even in the mindsets of library specialists.
R.Conrath, Ed.D.'s insight:

Here's the thing---a "learning commons" is simply what a 21st century library should be anyway.  If the space is well funded with proper tools, materials, and staff then the new fangled "learning commons" would be the meeting place for collaboration and learning that a library really is.  To quote Gertrude Stein:

"Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose..."

 

Even Dante had Virgil to guide him, and in the age of technology and information, users of media centers/libraries need a Virgil to sift through all the information that is now available at one's fingertips. "Googling" without care or a sense of critical thinking skills is like giving someone a book who doesn't know how to read. A good media center is more than a place with books and computers. (This should go without saying.)  Media specialists are in essence curriculum information specialists who can guide you and show you skills to find meaningful, relevant information. There's nothing new under the sun. What's happening is that administrators and other learning stakeholders are realizing that someone is needed to be the ringmaster of all things connected to reading, technology, and the Internet...Guess what? It's called a librarian.

Praxis intervention - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Praxis intervention is a form of participatory action research. The praxis intervention model emphasizes working on the praxis potential, or phronesis, of its participants, where other forms of participatory action research emphasize the collective modification of the external world (Madhu 2005). "Praxis potential" means the 'members' potential to reflexively work on their respective 'mentalities'; by 'participant' it is not just meant the clientele beneficiaries of the praxis intervention project alone, but also the organisers and experts participating in such a project. The praxis intervention aims at leading its members through a "participant objectivation". The praxis intervention method prioritizes unsettling the settled mentalities, especially where the settled mindsets prevalent in the social world or individuals is suspected to have sustained or contributed to their suffering or marginality (McLaren 2001).

Praxis is conceptualized in its reflexive as well as non-reflexive variety in Marx (Gouldner 1980:32–33). The reflexive praxis is understood as the moment in the dialectic change, and the non-reflexive one as the routinising mechanism operating within the ideologies as a reproductive or status quo maintaining. It is, for Marx, the non-reflexive habituating praxis, which leads to False consciousness and alienation.

To state it as it is explained by Markoviç (1974:64), moments of praxis include creativity instead of sameness, autonomy instead of subordination, sociality instead of massification, rationality instead of blind reaction and intentionality rather than compliance.

Evaluating web-based tools for language instruction

Evaluating web-based tools for language instruction | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

Over the last few years, interest in web-based tools has expanded rapidly, but how do we know which ones to use and which to avoid? In this workshop, we will look together at some web and mobile applications and establish criteria by which we can evaluate them to ensure we use tools that will lead to enhanced language learning.

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...
